Hellloooo! (I hope I'm putting this post in the right category!)

Tonight, I will start watching My Hero Academia.

I thought it would be fun if anybody else is still in the beginning of the series, that we have some place to talk about it while we are watching it? (I never used a forum before maybe thats more of a chat/discord kind of topic idk)

Anyways, it would be fun to talk about our impressions with someone who is also experiencing MHA for the first time! :D

Well said, @Ohiotaku! There is this underlying 'snake-iness' about him that I just can't overlook. Do I believe that there is a part of him that honestly wants to change? Yeah, I do. But I just can't

Having watched the whole first season of MHA, I can say the fight in the school's rescue simulation grounds against the real villains was SOO COOL!

I loved the cleverness of the writers in how to incorporate Mineta's quirk in the fight in the water area.

I also loved the Momo/Denki pair a lot. Momo's creation quirk is pretty neat because she has to know all the molecular science behind the objects.

I was so afraid for Eraser Head at the end but he really fought very well.

At this point, I'm getting pretty worried for All Might. He says he only has 1 hour of stamina left... (no spoilers please!)

As any of you watched the OVAs yet? I'm off to watch the first one!

Its a pretty awesome show that has in fact grown quite strongly on me. I admit when I first watched it didn't think it was something I would get into it. With that said I quickly developed a love for many of the characters. It is also a series that really teaches quite a few good lessons as well. I'm glad your enjoying it. :)

O_O How did I not watch the OVAs!!!? I was so pumped about this series after binging it all only to be left waiting for season 4. Now its almost time for that season.

I don’t believe the first 2 OVAs are licensed in the US. I watched them on Youtube, but the picture was only about a third of the screen and terrible quality. I was hoping they would be extras on season 2 or 3 disc release, but nope. A shame because I enjoyed them both. 

I haven’t seen the 3rd OVA. I suppose the movie really wasn’t that bad, it just didn’t feel all that special because the awesomeness of the tv series spoiled me. I was also feeling over hyped because it was the first time I’d seen a non-Ghibli anime in a theater.

Edit: seems I was wrong. Don’t see the third OVA listed as an extra either.

The ova are really funny and for some reason they break the 4th wall a lot plus we get some dakuxtsuyu moments 

There’s Deku & Tsuyu moments???????

It ticks me off when they license a series but the OVAs aren’t part of the deal

Just finished watching the first episode of season 4. Did a much better job of summarizing the important story points so far & introducing class 1A while still being entertaining for viewers who’ve been there from the start and not feeling like just a recap (a perfect example of how it SHOULD be done). And as usual the new OP & ED are great. I’ve said before I’m expecting great things from this season (which will be 2 cour) and it’s off to a good start. 🤩

Im hoping they add more of  Jiro, so far they haven't really shown much of her.  Theres rumors also that the invisible girl is secretly working for the villains. Though this is just a rumor.  The biggest problem with my hero is, every season they have to explain the plot and characters just to fill in time. Its like people already know who they are and what is going on. And new comers are just going to watch season 1 anyway.

I don’t think it is by necessity that recap episodes are often bad/boring. I was actually impressed by the number of points it touched on (even a nod to the movie), yet it didn’t feel forced and was actually an effective passing of the torch story. And even though the intros for much of the cast were short, they were actually amusing anecdotes that allowed their personalities to shine through, not just their quirks (wish the movie had done more of that). Compare that to last season which seemed to drag on across a couple episodes. Or to the first episode of the recently debuted Assassin’s Pride which spent most of it’s time on the MC’s inner monologue to bring the viewer up to speed on the setting. Amazing the difference effective writing can make.

I dunno, it felt like a recap to me and I'm not complaining but I would have found it more useful if they recapped the story more than re-explaining everyone's names and quirks. The characters are the easiest bit to remember. I really didn't need that montage of class 1-A.

I don’t know, the only ep I can think of that didn’t seem to have Deku at the center was the one about Tsuyu’s internship (actually a bit disappointed that it sounds like we won’t see Sirius & Selkie again). But there are a number of new characters in the OP & PVs I assume will be in the other student’s work studies (Tsuyu, Ochaco, Tsukoyomi and the hardening guy were all mentioned). But yeah, looks like the focus of the first cour anyway will be Deku proving

to Nighteye & himself

that he’s worthy to be All Might’s successor. Wouldn’t be surprised if he comes out publicly as such by season’s end. Also have to say scrawny All Might still appears in costume a lot in the OP for a guy who’s supposed to be retired.

They hinted in the last episode that there will be something up with Allmight. I assume that it will probably have to do with his losing the powers, and probably also suffering severe health repercussions. So I guess that Allmight will play less of a role as a hero this season. But I am curious to see what's up with what they hinted at.

      Yo Anime Forums! It's Groove_Kami here to bring you this blog.
      So, I love the series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. It was created back in 1987 by Hirohiko Araki and since then, we've had more than 30 years of this series bliss. It currently has 8 parts, 8 main JoJo's, over 150 stands, and lots and lots of badboys. But, there is a certain part that a lot of fans consider their favorite part, and one of the most popular parts, being Part 5: Golden Wind.
      Golden Wind has this weird appeal to the fans, and is much different from the earlier parts. It's more, Bizarre, per se. I think one of it's appeals is it's main cast, who we will be looking at and ranking by their strengths and abilities. I will be ranking all 7 of Passione(Bucciaratti's Team), our main cast. Now, if you have seen part 5 and disagree with my rankings, please, be mindful and don't act like a coked-up chimpanzee. Now, with all of this out of the way, let's begin.
      #7-Leone Abbachio & Moody Blues- Leone Abbachio, a former cop who had quit after the death of his partner, and overall being mediocre at his job. One night, he was found by Bucciarrati, and he was offered to join his squad. He joined the mafia gang, Passione, and got his Stand, Moody Blues. Moody Blues is a close-range Humanoid Stand with the ability of Chronological Rebroadcasting. Chronological Rebroadcasting allows Abbachio to replay any event that has happened, whether it be 5 minutes or 20 years ago. But, the more time had passed from that events, the more time it will take to replay it. Now, this Stand is not used for combat, but more for investigation. This already lands Abbacchio on the weakest spot on the list, along with it's low stats, with a C in Power, Speed, Precision, and Development. It only has A's in Range and Persistence. So yeah, Abbachio is the weakest of all of Passione.
      #6-Guido Mista & Sex Pistols- Guido Mista, a young man who was cheated by the legal system for murdering 4 people with a gun when saving a woman. He was sentenced 15-30 years in prison, but was eventually bailed out by Bucciaratti due to his skills with a pistol, and offered him a spot on his team. He accepted and got his Stand, Sex Pistols. Sex Pistols is a long-distance colony stand, being 6 in total, numbered 1-7(he skipped 4 due to it being unlucky). Sex Pistols' ability is Bullet Control. Sex Pistols will load themselves into the cylinder of the pistol, and once a bullet is shot, they will ride on the bullet. They then can change the trajectory and/or add power and speed to the bullet. Now, he could've been higher if his Stands were more useful without Mista's gun, because anybody above Mista can break the pistol, catch bullets, or easily defeats their Stands. Plus, Mista will eventually run out of bullets, thus making him and his stand utterly defenseless.
      #5-Trish Una & Spice Girl- Trish Una, a young woman who is the daughter of the boss of Passione, Diavolo. She originally was suppose to be guarded by Bucciaratti's team, but was secretely supposed to be killed by Diavolo. She then stayed with Bucciarati's team, and developed her Stand, Spice Girl. Spice Girl's ability is Softening. Softening allows Spice Girl to, well, soften anything it touches. This already gives her an advantage because she can soften Mista's gun. But...she doesn't have any other advantage other than actually being a combat stand. So yeah, Trish is just not that strong compared to the other members.
      #4-Narancia Ghirga & Aerosmith- Narancia Ghirga, a young man who was betrayed by his friends, and was a delinquent with a terrible life. Narancia's mother had died from an eye disease when Narancia was young. Eventually, he was neglected by his father, which basically let Narancia do whatever he wanted. He dropped out of school, and started hanging out with young thugs and delinquents. Eventually, he was tricked by one of his friends and got framed, and was soon betrayed by his friends, and then got the same disease his mother got. One day, Pannacotta Fugo, a member of Passione, found him outside. the resturant he was at. Bucciarratti offered him food, and eventually got his disease healed. He then wanted join Passione, and was accepted. Then he got his Stand, Aerosmith. Aerosmith is a long-distance stand that takes the form of a small WW2 fighter plane, loaded with powerful weapons. He has 2 machine guns loaded under each wings, with an infinite number of hard-hitting bullets. He also has a small bomb that can decimate the inside of a car, and a Carbon Dioxide radar. Narancia is a pretty powerful opponent, but falls in comparison to the people higher than him.
      #3-Bruno Bucciarati & Sticky Fingers-Bruno Bucciarati, the leader of his own team, and has had a troubled past. His Father was a fisherman, and his Mother would stay at home. They divorced when Bucciaratti was 10, where he decided to stay with his 10. One day, his dead was shot down when he witnessed a drug deal, but was saved by luck. Bruno would vow to protect his father, and did when the dealers came to kill him one night. Bucciarati then joined and served under Passione, eventually gaining his own team, being our main cast. Bucciarati's Stand is Sticky Fingers, a close-range stand that can create and manipulate Zippers. Bucciarati can create Zippers and do a lot with them. He can store and hide in his zippers, unzip his body parts to extend his range, zip and unzip peoples bodies, and so much more. And due to his amazing intellect and creativity, this allows him to climb the ranks to our 3rd spot.
      #2-Pannacotta Fugo & Purple Haze- Pannacotta Fugo, a young boy who has a high IQ. He was able to go to college at age 10, where he beat his teacher with an encyclopedia after almost getting sexually harassed by his teacher. He was then neglected, and eventually, kicked out of his family by his parents. Then, he was found by Bucciarati, and joined his crew. He then got one of the deadliest Stands in the gang, and all of JoJo, Purple Haze. Purple Haze can create a deadly virus that can eat a living-being's flesh in under 30 seconds. This ability is overpowered, but has one flaw: it damages and affects the user. You could swap Fugo and Bucciarati around, but I chose Fugo over Bucciarati due to his deadly virus.
      #1-Giorno Giovanna and Gold Experience- Giorno Giovanna. The Main JoJo of Part 5 and the son of Dio Brando. He joined Passione after his fight with Bucciarati so that he can stop the boss, become the boss, and stop the gang from selling drugs to kids. Giorno's Stand is Gold Experience, a Stand that has multiple abilities. His main ability is Life Giver, where it can create living beings from inorganic objects. It has Damage Reflection, which i self explanatory. It can also create flesh and organs to heal and give people new body parts. He also has Life Exhaustion, which allows him to grow and wither things in an instant. It has Life Shot, which can accelerate someone's thought process before they even attack, rendering them unable to move for a bit. But that's not all, because Gold Experience has another form. If Giorno stabs himself with the Requiem Stand Arrow, he can become Gold Experience Requiem, the most powerful Stand in JoJo. It as all of it's original abilities, but with one new ability: Return to Zero. Gold Experience Requiem's ultimate ability is to revert actions and willpower directed against Giorno back to the state of "zero", completely nullifying them and preventing them from becoming "real". Hence, it is virtually invincible, as all "supposed" actions created by an opponent would have been reset (back to point zero). Once struck by this effect, there is no escape from it, and the opponent will have every action they perform reverted back to "zero". It is mentioned by Giorno himself that he is unsure of the exact workings and limits of GER's powers, but it has been shown that its range of influence extends from surface contact to even being in the mere attention field of GER. This cavalcade of abilities allow Giorno to climb up to the strongest spot on Bucciarati's team.
      Anyway, that's all from me. If you want me to analyze or rank anything from your favorite anime, let me know. Also, this is my first blog on my first day here, so I have high hopes for this sit. Ask me anything in the comments, and I'll see ya later. Adios Chimichangas.
